The Mysterious Loss of Charlotte Figi

The mysterious loss of Charlotte Figi

Most sources report that Charlotte Figi died on April 7 of the Covid-19 virus. Whether one of the world’s leading advocates of cannabis legalization has died from Covid-19 complications, we cannot confirm, but we announce with great sadness that the world has lost a “cannabis patient” whose entire family has fought for medical cannabis and the legalization of CBD products to treat children’s health problems.

The coronavirus test showed a negative result, which was confirmed by the girl’s family. The massive fear and chaos of the virus seem to prevent medical professionals from properly assessing situations and doing their jobs, and a forgiving approach to statistics on mortality from coronavirus further distorts the truth and raises more questions.

“Charlotte is no longer suffering. She is seizure-free forever. Thank you so much for all of your love”. – the message that was posted on Charlotte’s Figi Facebook page.

The story of Charlotte Figi 

The 13-year-old girl had a rare, drug-resistant form of epilepsy, Dravet’s syndrome, from 3 months of age. She was afflicted daily with mild and very severe attacks, after which she often found herself in the hospital. There were as many as 300 seizures a week. No pharmaceutical drugs gave positive results, and often the side effects negatively affected the already fragile body of Charlotte.

Charlotte Figi began using cannabis extracts that contain the predominant amount of CBD. Only after starting CBD products, there were no seizures for 7 days. The Colorado-based medical cannabis company Stanley brothers have come up with a special variety just for her called Charlottes Web.

The Charlottes Web variety contains less than 1% THC and about 20% CBD. Extracts were made from the plant to help the girl overcome her disability. From 300 seizures a week, we managed to reduce it to a few a month. She no longer needed a wheelchair, she was finally able to eat, play, ride a bike and enjoy life on her own.

“She was a light that lit the world. Charlotte was ten feet tall and carried the world on her shoulders.“ – these words were written in memory of Charlottes by Stanley Brothers.

2013 Dr. Sanjay Gupta, along with CNN, made a documentary about Charlotte Figi and the benefits she gets from cannabis.

This story has inspired millions of people around the world. Many families facing similar problems have discovered the benefits of cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD). Charlotte’s family has been contributory in various movements, reforms, and amendments to laws that have allowed the wider use of cannabis preparations in pediatrics.

The virus hit the whole family

Back in early March, Charlotte’s Figi mother, Paige Figi, reported on social media that they had been caught by a fierce virus that affected all five family members. The whole family had a fever, coughing, pain, indigestion, but did not meet all the criteria to be tested for Covid-19. According to the doctors, the children are not at risk and there have almost been no cases with the virus in children, and the condition of the older family members is not serious enough. They were told to treat themselves at home and apply only if they felt severely unwell.

On April 3 Charlotte’s condition worsened significantly. Doctors decided to take her to the pediatric intensive care unit. The girl was given all the medical care there. She was treated according to all protocols as a patient of the Covid-19 virus. The strangest thing is that a virus test showed a negative result.

On April 5 Charlotte’s condition improved and she was released home.

On April 7 the girl suffered a severe epilepsy attack during which she experienced respiratory failure and her heart stopped beating. It is officially announced that she died of complications caused by the Covid-19 virus, but the exact cause of death will still be examined by experts.

The U.S. is one of those countries where the medicinal properties of cannabis are well known, so the girl’s parents decided to take a look at the hope and try treatment with cannabinoids.

It is no longer so important whether the girl was given the wrong help or whether the Covid-19 test gave a false result. Charlotte’s mother said the test for the virus should have been done a month ago, only when she felt symptoms. In that case, the most appropriate assistance could have been provided.
